“It was the first game, but it was so much fun”
The Dallas Mavericks met the Sacramento Kings in the 2022-2023 NBA regular season held at the Sacramento Golden 1 Center on the 12th (Korean time) and lost 128-133.
Dallas made a surprise acquisition of Kyrie Irving (188cm, G) ahead of the last trade deadline. Irving averaged 24.5 points in his first two games since joining Dallas, filling the void left by Luka Doncic (201cm, F). Thanks to Irving’s performance, Dallas won both games. I ended up winning 4 in a row.
And ahead of the match against Sacramento, Doncic also joined. That’s how the two players matched their breath for the first time.
With Doncic back on the court at the beginning of the game, Dallas started to dominate the game. Doncic not only scored himself, but also saved other teammates. He recorded 11 points and 3 assists from the first quarter. However, Dallas gave up the atmosphere in the bench confrontation section.
The two teams continued to battle in the second quarter. However, Dallas made it 64-62 with about a minute left in the quarter, adding Doncic’s consecutive points and Irving’s 3-point shot. In the 3rd quarter, the battle between the two teams was still close.
At the beginning of the 4th quarter, Christian Wood (206cm, F) played an active role, leading Dallas to 5 points. However, he failed to control De’Aaron Pax (191cm, G) and conceded a goal to Domantas Sabonis (211cm, FC) 37 seconds before the end of the quarter, and the game went into overtime. 카지노사이트
In overtime, Irving led the team’s offense by scoring 7 points. However, I gave up 14 points to Pax and unfortunately lost the game.
Doncic had 27 points, 9 rebounds and 5 assists, while Irving had 28 points, 7 assists and 7 rebounds, but could not prevent the team from losing.
After the game, when I asked Doncic how he felt about playing with Irving, Doncic said, “It was amazing. We had our first match. “Irving is an amazing basketball player. And in the future, we will play more fun basketball.”
What kind of basketball will the much-anticipated Irving and Doncic play? Attention is focusing on whether Irving’s recruitment can change the game of the NBA.
